Nickel scraps and challenge

Woohoo....this month is rolling along.  I checked on my list for March and I am almost there!
    The  5" scrap project is ready for quilting. It's on the floor because the design wall is in use.   My goal was to get the 48 blocks put  together this month.  Check!    I will get it pinned for quilting  this month....maybe.

 


 On the design wall is my guild challenge project.  The goal this month for it was to finish the applique and join the sections.  Check!
   I finished off the machine applique and joined the sections.  I had a few of the appliques to finish that overlapped the seam lines.....all done.  The remainder of the challenge "ugly" fabric was used for the inner border strip.  
    Now I need to figure out the outer border.   Right now I am playing around with the leftover background pieces  for that.  Or  maybe adding some 4 patch units between them......not sure yet.  I will let it simmer on the design wall for a while.


 
    The final challenge for Project Quilting was posted.  Our design inspiration is "Hurrah for Spring".  I began pulling fabrics for this one.....now that I see them in a photo, I may need to lighten up just a bit.

The nickle quilt looks great! And the guild challenge piece is coming nicely - funny how ugly can turn into a 'swan'. LOL - I have 3 of those fabrics in my tote and almost used one of them for Project Quilting - but went with another palette after pulling so many.

Love your nickle scrap quilt, Debbie. Great work. Way to stick with your goals!

You certainly have been productive and as always your applique is gorgeous. Now that it has been incorporated into the quilt I would be very hard pressed to identify an "ugly" fabric.

Love that nickel quilt! Bold, clean lines and lots of color.
I don't see anything ugly about the challenge quilt!
